SubConn Coax series

NEWS:  The original SubConn Coax Series is  slated to be obsoleted at the end of 2017 and replaced replaced with the new High Frequency Coax Connectors (now available).  Please call or email us for details.

The SubConn® Coax series is primarily used for facilitating the transmission of high definition (HD) video signal within and between underwater systems and for interfacing HD video based equipment such as cameras and telemetry systems. The SubConn® Coax connectors feature a high depth rating and fully harness the rugged quality and basic SubConn® design that has been trusted by marine industry operators for decades.

The SubConn® Coax series embraces two primary connector models including a coax-only connector option and a combined coax and electric connector option with six electric contacts for handling power and signal on interfaced equipment. The latter option enables users to fully control and power equipment using only a single connector, allowing for design optimization of underwater systems. Both connector types are available with an impedance of 50 or 75 ohms.

SubConn® Coax connectors are dry mate only and cannot take open face pressure.

SubConn® Coax connectors come with colour-coded leads and are often supplied with dummy connectors and injection moulded polyoxymethylene (POM) or stainless steel locking sleeves (required). In addition, SubConn® Coax connectors are available with specially designed SubConn® coax- or combined power and coax cable manufactured from flexible and water-resistant polyurethane (PUR).
